Organ music holds a special affection for leading UK composer Judith Bingham, and the repertoire on this second Naxos recording reflects a cross-section of her themes and work both recently composed and newly arranged.
Experienced broadcast performer Tom Winpenny is joined by the acclaimed group, The Dmitri Ensemble, for the atmospheric concerto Jacob’s Ladder, while the rebuilt St Albans Cathedral Organ is an ideal instrument for works such as the improvisatory Annunciation I and radiantly charming Hope, recorded, as was all the music on this album, in the composer’s presence.
